Beautiful Chenrezig Statue Features
Tibetan Buddhists are well known for their optimistic perspective. Therefore, Chenrezig is holds the wish fulfilling jewel pressed between his hands in front of his heart. This “citamani” is a special jewel of enlightenment. As a result, Tibetan Buddhists believe it will manifest itself as whatever it is they are wishing for!
In his other two hands our beautiful Chenrezig statue holds the mala beads and also the stem of a lotus flower. The lotus flower is very significant in Buddhism. This flower represents the ability of the virtuous to rise above the sea of suffering.
Additionally, a small depiction of Amitabha Buddha sits on the ushnisha topknot that rises above the bodhisattva crown. This unique feature shows the close affiliation between Tibetan Avalokiteshvara and Amitabha Buddha. Click here to learn more about the origin of Chenrezig.
